In preparation for Kyla’s Highland Games on October 27th, I had to get “Scotland-ized” in tartans……………well, I think I look pretty darn fabulous and Mom is now calling me “Sammy McKimmell”…………..pretty cool huh???
I now have had ELEVEN friends send me their head shot photos so I can photoshop them into the Caber Toss action I’m hosting…………..I’ll be honest – they are mostly pretty darn hilarious. I’m not gonna share any of them now – you’ll have to visit me on the 27th when my blog is part of the Games but trust me – it will be worth a peek!
If you have no idea what I’m talking about with Kyla and the Highland Games, you can go HERE and get the scoop……….it’s a sad thing but we’re making lemonade out of lemons and giving Kyla – at her request – a wonderful party! So if you wanna play along – email me your head shot and I’ll add yours to the bunch.
Mom and I have been decorating our Haunted House too………….it will be SPOOKY and I’m going to have SPOOKY snacks and SPOOKY drinks so you don’t have to bring a thing but yourself! You don’t even have to be in costume…..but if you decide to enter my FUNIEST HALLOWEEN COSTUME contest, of course you need to be in something funny (photoshopped or real) and get it to be by October 27th……….the clock is ticking…….we’re gonna have voting and everything!
The only other report I have is that after about eleven million days of rain (ok – slight exaggeration – more like five) it’s finally stopped. It’s cloudy but there’s no rain. Something WEIRD has happened though because all of a sudden the leaves on the trees are changing to Fall colors QUICKLY – – – – like almost overnight – – – maybe the rain sped things up. It’s looking spectacular out there. That’s also a bit strange because Mom and Dad drove up to Skyline Drive two weeks ago and the leaves had hardly changed up there yet….usually they’re WAY ahead of us…..wonder if maybe they decided to change FAST too?! This is what they looked like then……….
Some of you have seen this shot before but Mom took this out the plane window when Dad was flying around the countryside a couple of years ago…….Mom thought the Fall colors were pretty cool from UP THERE!!!
Fall in Virginia is BEAUTIFUL……………………I hope wherever you are it’s also beautiful!
